Weekend warrior gardening with grandma was the best! I was allowed to get as dirty as I wanted and she'd break out the pool so I could wash off. Score!! The dollhouse in the guestroom at rainy river... I still remember what it looked like all these decades later. (Yet I constantly misplace my keys. ) Don't get me started on her obsession with Tom Selleck, rather, magnum PI ! (I know it was the shorts 😘). She had such a fantastic sense of humor. Really, she was the best grandma ever. She taught us strength, love, compassion. She gave us herself, unconditionally. She will be missed and no one will compare. Rest in peace. (I love you, Grandma. )
